The Artist's Way 2013
Tuesday Evenings March 5 - April 30th 2013, 7-9 PM
Location: Cannon Beach Gallery, 1064 S. Hemlock St., Cannon Beach, OR.
Tuition: $135 (9 weeks). A 15% Discount for CBAA members.
Note: Course is limited to 12 participants, early registration is encouraged.
Pre-registration is required with instructor Diane Fisher by email to email@example.com or by phone (503) 717-3924
This transformational workshop is based on the seminal book on the subject of creativity, The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. Each weekly two-hour session focuses on one of the twelve chapters, doubling up on a few chapters to finish the course in nine weeks. With an emphasis on accompanying self-discovery exercises and activities, The Artist's Way is a ground-breaking process that has helped millions of people worldwide successfully move forward with their creative goals. The non-judgmental structure of the workshop encourages new ideas and is an invaluable guide to successfully living the artist's life.
Perhaps your dream is to write a novel, paint a picture, perform on stage, start a business or simply be more creative in your daily life but you're feeling stuck, overwhelmed or unsure. Now is your opportunity to not only accomplish your goals, but to change your life in the process.
During the nine week program you will:
- Expand your creative vision
- Learn how to "unblock"
- Discover ways to make time for your creative projects
- Find out how to handle critics
- Realize that wanting your work to be "perfect" is a roadblock to getting it done
- Become skilled at dealing with creative U-turns.
- Experience the joy of creative camaraderie!
For the course you will need a copy of the book, The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity by Julia Cameron. You will also need a simple, spiral-bound notebook for daily journal writing. Nothing fancy - a school notebook works great.
Prior to the first meeting you'll be required to read the introductory chapter about the basic tools. Please note: This is not an art class. No artistic or writing skill is required, simply a commitment to connect with your creative self.
Facilitator / Workshop Presenter Profile: Diane Fisher is an award-winning designer and entrepreneur, published author, mixed-media artist, architectural color consultant, former gallery director and artist-in-residency recipient. She facilitates Artist's Way workshops and offers classes and private coaching sessions developed to help people grow creatively.
Part cheerleader and part creativity coach, Diane is no stranger to creative challenges.
In the early 1990's, while living in New Mexico, she was fortunate enough to meet and be inspired by Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way.
Needing a little creative nudging of her own at the time, she joined one of the first Artist's Way groups formed in Santa Fe where she met weekly with working and aspiring artists, screenwriters, actors, painters, sculptors, gallery owners, and performers who all came together to be part of this amazing process. Diane credits her mid-life creative recovery to having gone through the The Artist's Way, which was a turning-point in helping her navigate a difficult life-transition and co-author a book on the subject.
Since then, Diane has participated in and led numerous Artist's Way groups and keeps her artist journals close at hand. She has recently relocated to Cannon Beach, to continue her creative endeavors and share what she's learned along the way.
Diane first gained national recognition from features by Good Morning America, The Robb Report, Better Homes & Gardens and Victoria magazines for her imaginative designs for A-list clients such as Yves St. Laurent, Neiman-Marcus, Ritz-Carlton Hotels and the United States Olympic Committee.
In addition to public and private boards, she has served on the Lake Oswego Public Arts Committee and as a volunteer for the Museum of Contemporary Craft and Public Broadcasting Service (PBS).
"No matter what your age or your life path,
whether making art is your career or your hobby or your dream it is not too late
or too egotistical or too selfish or too silly to work on your creativity."
Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way
"For those who will use it (the Artist's Way book),
this is a valuable tool to get in touch with their own creativity."

Cannon Beach Photo Review
October 12-14, 2012
Photography is as popular today as ever. Someone you know may have a knack for getting a good shot more often than not. Eventually, an aspiring photographer will ask themselves the question: Do I have what it takes to do this for a living? The answer may be simpler to get than one thinks.
On October 12-14 2012, the CBAA will host the inaugural Cannon Beach Photo Review (CBPR) weekend. The three-day event has numerous offerings for photographers to mingle, network, exhibit, socialize, and meet professionals in the photography industry. The focus of the weekend occurs when registered photographers have one-on-one portfolio review sessions with reviewers. These reviewers are gallery owners, magazine editors and collectors, and they will share their wisdom, criticism, and feedback. And when the right reviewer meets the right photographer, sparks can fly, opportunities can be offered, and careers sent on their way. It is exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time.
The CBPR is also offering a group show at the Cannon Beach Gallery for all participating photographers and reviewers. This Friday night opening will include a Keynote Speaker delivering an inspirational message for all of us. Local photographers will share their love of this area by teaching workshops throughout the weekend. A no-holds-barred Question and Answer Panel will be the entertainment on Saturday evening. To wrap up the event on Sunday, a Peer Review will be held where photographers can share their portfolios and network with each other.
Events like this are held from time to time in other regions of the country, usually in larger urban areas. The Cannon Beach Photo Review not only will offer the same caliber of reviewers, it will offer the extraordinary scenery of Cannon Beach, and a host of photographers who can in- struct on how best to capture its beauty on film.
With the help of a generous grant from the City of Cannon Beach Tourism and Arts Fund, the CBAA seeks to further promote Cannon Beach as an arts destination, as well as a gorgeous and inviting place to visit. We expect to have at least 50 photographers and 15 reviewers in town for that weekend. If you or someone you know might be interested in this type of experience, please contact Don Frank at 503-738- 5118, or visit the website www.cannonbeachphotoreview.com.
The Cannon Beach Arts Association is pleased to announce that it will be holding two literary events in the upcoming weeks at the Cannon Beach Gallery in midtown. First, on Sunday, February 26 the Fisher Poets will gather at the gallery for their annual wrap up of their weekend long festival in Astoria. The reading will feature such local legends as Geno Leech, of Chinook, Washington and Jay Speakman and Jon Broderick of Cannon Beach.
Every year the poets take some time at the end of the weekend to all gather in one place and hear each other read, which isn't always possible during the busy weekend festival in Astoria. At times serious and often hilarious, the reading is an intimate way to experience this uniquely coastal gathering of poets and musicians.
Next up, in March, the CBAA will be hosting author Sybil James in a Friday night reading on March 9 at 6pm.
The book is called The Last Woro Woro to Treichville: A West African Memoir; it's a memoir of the year James spent teaching and traveling as a Fulbright professor in Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast). Essay topics range from daily life to cultural traditions to the military coup and other politics that set the scene for the recent turmoils in the country. In addition, James explores her relationship with the four African girls who adopted her.
In her lastest book, Sibyl James has given us the next best thing to a ticket to West Africa's Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast). Through her eyes as a resident foreigner, the country comes vividly alive in all its joys and foibles, from funky communal taxis and energetic dances to student uprisings and the politics that have led to the recent civil wars.
James has published eight books of poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction, including In China with Harpo and Karl (Calyx Books) and The Adventures of Stout Mama (Papier-Mache Press). James has taught as a Fulbright professor in Tunisia and Cote d'Ivoire.
Both readings are free and open to the public.

25th Silver Anniversary Celebration
September 16, 5-9p.m.
On September 16, 1986 artists, art patrons and business community members came together to officially found the Cannon Beach Arts Association. It was decided that the CBAA would focus on becoming a vehicle for promoting the arts and individual artists, in the Cannon Beach community through education, events and exhibits.
p style="margin-left: 20px; margin-right: 20px; margin-top: 0px; text-align: left;">
Now, twenty-five years later, the Cannon Beach Arts Association is celebrating its Silver Anniversary with an open house at the Cannon Beach Gallery in mid-town on Friday, September 16 from 5-9 p.m. with refreshments and live flamenco guitar music by Brian Johnstone. There will be champagne, sparkling cider, appetizers and gourmet desserts created (and donated) by area chefs.
The idea behind the event is to honor the myriad individuals who have played a role in the organization over the years, whether as an exhibiting artist, a volunteer at the desk, a patron of the arts or a member of the board of directors. Like so many of the non-profit organizations in town, the CBAA would not exist today if it was not for the countless volunteer man hours that has kept its programs running over the decades.
So, if you have ever been involved in the CBAA or would like just like a unique chance to celebrate our vibrant arts community on the northern Oregon Coast, please come join us for this lively event.
A silent auction will be held featuring antique silver, as well as jewelry and other silver themed items donated by local artists and shop keepers.

Storms, Stories and Songs: A Celebration of Cannon Beach
June 11, 18, 25, & July 2
The Cannon Beach Arts Association awards an annual $3,000 grant to an emerging or professional artist from the community. The Artist Grant is intended to promote the work of local artists and to provide support necessary to expand their creative process. It is also the intent to encourage a wider art audience and quality art experiences within the community.
The 2010 winner of the Individual Artist Grant, Patrick Lathrop will present his original musical Storms, Stories and Songs: A Celebration of Cannon Beach, at the Coaster Theater in June and early July. Admission to all of the performances are free.
Opening night performance (followed by a Gala Event): Saturday, June 11, at 7pm.
Subsequent performances: Saturdays: June 18, 25 and July 2, at 12 noon.
Lathrop has been working with local school children to stage the production; which is an original musical play about the history of Cannon Beach. Over the course of the winter, Lathorp researched and wrote the play. He utilized archives from the Cannon Beach History Center as a resource for defining his characters and the time periods, including historic images to create the scenery.
The Cannon Beach Arts Association's Individual Artist Grant program is supported in part by the City of Cannon Beach.
Special Valentine Art Events in from Jan. 22 - Feb. 14
Sally Lackaff: Lovingly Crafted Valentines; one of a kind, hand sewn Valentines with a message from cupid, January 22 - February 14.
Marchi Wierson: Trunk Show; felted jewelry and objects for the home, February 12 and 13 from 10-12.
The Cannon Beach Gallery is pleased to announce that it will feature the handcrafted Valentines of local artist Sally Lackaff from Saturday, January 22, 2011 - February 14, 2011. The one-of-a-kind, multi-media Valentines are created from cloth and paper scraps, vintage ribbon and lace, mirror, beads, and copper as well as drawings and embroidery.
Each of Lackaff's Valentines is a meticulously realized work of art; decidedly atypical fare.
"To honor Cupid these Valentines offer a mix of loving, romantic, corny and downright frivolous messages along with pleasurably anonymous choices, ensuring a suitable and completely unique option for any lover on your list," Lackaff said of the body of work.
The selection will grow and change throughout the month -- so come often to see them all!
In addition, new-comer Marchi Wierson, who will also be one of the featured artists in February's Form and Function Group Show (February 4- February 28), will be appearing for a trunk show on Saturday, February 12 and Sunday, February 13 from 10-12.
A truly inspired artist who works "green," Wierson is based in Portland but also has ties to Cannon Beach, Oregon, where her family has long held property. Currently, Wierson is working primarily in wool, and will have jewelry and objects for the home at the trunk show.
"Wool has so much potential for innovation for me as an artist," noted Wierson.
"It has a quality that inspires others to want to explore and touch."
To Wierson, ornamentation of oneself and ones living space is one of the great pleasures in life.
"I make art and objects to wear with this in mind," Wierson said of her work, which includes felted beads made into necklaces that are reminiscent of something Frida Kahlo would have worn.
"My intention is to make something beautiful which contributes to the well being of others while also respecting our environment. This is why I choose the materials I do, emphasizing natural and recycled resources," Wierson added.
Taylor Branch, Pulitzer Prize Winning Author and Prof. Quintard Taylor in Cannon Beach from Jan. 28-30, 2011
Join our three-day literary arts symposium centered on the civil rights movement of the 1950's-60's. 2011 marks 50 years since the historic Freedom Rides of 1961, where busloads of volunteers traveled to the South to register African American voters in a politically turbulent time.

philanthropic support of local causes. She is also a past participant
on the Sculpture Without Walls event held annually in Cannon Beach, of
which CBAA has been a sponsor. Raffle tickets cost $2 each or three

August 21st and 22nd, 2010: Tom Stoppard's one act play—After Magritte
The Cannon Beach Gallery was transformed into a dynamic stage for multiple performances of Tom Stoppard's one act play, After Magritte. The comical farce is fast moving, a panoply of action and wit that keeps audience members guessing what exactly is happening, at least the first time around. That is why seeing the show twice is a recommended must!
Now, the troupe of five veteran actors (Paul Dueber, Brandy Hussa, Jason Hussa, Winston Laszlo, and Jack Shields) will return for a repeat performance of After Magritte. The evening event will begin with wine and appetizers, followed by a half an hour performance of After Magritte. After the play, there will be chance to engage in intelligent conversation with the cast and director while enjoying champagne and gourmet cupcakes.
Tickets are $25. ONLY 20 GUESTS per performance, with a total of four performances throughout the weekend at 5:30-7:30 PM and 8:00-9:30 PM on both Saturday and Sunday night. To make your reservation now: email director Andrea Mace at . Space is limited, large parties are encouraged to call soon to be guaranteed a seat.
The schedule is as follows: Saturday, August 21 and Sunday, August 22
5:30 p.m. Guests arrive at Gallery for wine and appetizers
6:00-6:30 After Magritte
6:30-7:30 Actors mingle a bit and chat with guests about the show while enjoying wine and artful desserts.

Saturday, June 26 from 6-8PM--Dessert Walk and Raffle at the opening reception of Sea Creatures
"Culinary Arts floating the Visual Arts"
Eight local chefs will be donating their delicious, artful desserts for a lively fundraising event akin to musical chairs, an old fashioned Cake Walk!
Gourmet desserts are being donated by the Bistro,
Waves of Grain Bakery, the Lumberyard Rotisserie and Grill, the
Wayfarer Restaurant, the Stephanie Inn Dining Room, Lori McKean for
Glynis Art Ventures, Cannon Beach Bakery, Seasons, and Newman's at
In addition, a beautifully presented basket will be raffled off that is full of local art, food and wine with a $300 value. The Jeffrey Hull Gallery donated a giclee print to the CBAA for our Art and Wine Basket raffle.
Other donations are from Josephson's Smoke House, Bruce's Candy Kitchen, Cannon Beach Gallery, Ter Har's and the Basket Case.
Tickets are on sale at the Cannon Beach Gallery for $2 each or 3 for $5. Cake Walk tickets will be on sale at the reception for $5 a walk.
June 26, 2010: Plein Air and More
On Saturday, June 26, more than fifteen artists will participate in a spectacular event called Plein Air and More, in which artists set up their easels (or other means of working) across town between 11 AM and 4 PM in such easily accessible places as Whale Park, Les Shirely Park and the Tolovana Wayside. This is the second Plein Air and More event to be sponsored by Cannon Beach's Gallery Group, a non-profit group working to promote Cannon Beach as, "Your Art Destination." The Gallery Group decided to add the words, "and more," to the Plein Air event in order to include sculptors and photographers.
The one act Tom Stoppard play, After Magritte, is an intellectual farce about art, Taylor thought that performing the piece in a gallery would be an interesting twist. The Cannon Beach Gallery is a fairly small space in contrast to a traditional theater, so the audience played a larger role in the production due to the close proximity of the actors moving about directly in front of them.
"The CB Gallery is such a lovely open space and it has a number of exit/entrance points so it seemed a perfect setting for a performance," said director Merril Lynn Taylor, during a recent interview.

Orange Cake was donated by the Wayfarer Restaurant for the 2009 Cake Walk.
The Cannon Beach Arts Association has selected the 2009 recipient for the Individual Artist Grant, Bonny Gorsuch. Gorsuch will be creating a line of garments and accessories created from 100% recycled textiles and fabrics. Gorsuch is using current events as the basis and subject matter for the garments. The clothing will be featured in a green-inspired fashion show called "Random Scraps of Fabric." The show and exhibition took place in June 3, 2010 at the Coaster Theater. Tickets required. The Cannon Beach Arts Association Individual Artist Grant is awarded annually to an artist, musician or writer working out of Cannon Beach or Arch Cape. Contact CBAA at (503) 436-0744 or for more information.
